Illustrated Glossary of Hand and Reconstructive Surgery

Illustrated Glossary of Hand and Reconstructive Surgery

by Ekkehard Vaubel, J. Hussman

Editorial Reviews

The subject area is reconstructive surgery, emphasizing plastic, hand, face, and microsurgery, but also including cancer of the breast and penis. The parallel terms, most with descriptive paragraphs, but none with pronunciation indicated, are arranged in sections. The largest section, diseases, is alphabetical by English with German and French indexes. Clinical signs and tests are listed by who first described them, and so are virtually identical in the three languages. Other, shorter sections are classifications, abbreviations, surgical techniques, malformations of the upper extremity, TNM classification, measurements, periodicals, medical societies and data services, and proofreader's marks.
